My first Prada bag was a nylon backpack with gold chains. I wore that thing everywhere, even to class (a student needs a backpack, no?). I was so obsessed with these bags that they were one of the main topics of conversation with my girlfriends every day.
Maggie Copeland founded Brooklyn-based Palethorp with a focus on high-quality leathers and snakeskins (even the signature lining is snake-printed), or more often than not, a juxtaposition of the two. The results are perfect summer fun, and as if the prices weren’t reasonable enough to begin with, the label is offering Snobs an exclusive 40% discount!
There’s just one week left to enter to win this pale pink Balenciaga Tube bag ($1,795) and $1,000 Kirna Zabete gift certificate…if you haven’t signed up yet, now’s the time!
I absolutely love this! Never one to complacently go with the ordinary designer grain, mix-master designer (and husband to Isabel Marant) Jérôme Dreyfuss always has a distinct, unmistakable way of shaking up textures and colors. But this three-way combo of denim, suede, and snake is flat-out genius.
Sprinkled with a little Marc by Marc Jacobs’ pixie dust, and the most basic of shapes goes from boring to incredibly cute. Narciso may be the king of colorblocking, but you can always look to Marc by Marc for a tasteful (and well-priced) interpretation of the trend – with added texture-blocking to boot!
